There's no question that writer Scott Snyder has mastered the art of creating a really creepy Batman story. From his BATMAN: THE BLACK MIRROR in DETECTIVE COMICS to his BATMAN: THE COURT OF OWLS; it's clear the man has developed some very interesting and very scary situations for our Dark Knight. So it's interesting that we have not yet seen one of Batman's creepiest adversaries in quite some time. It's officially been one full year of Batman comics since DC's relaunch and there's been no mention of the Crown Prince of Crime -- until now.

The Joker returns in “DEATH OF THE FAMILY”! He crippled Batgirl. He killed Robin. What will The Joker do now that he’s returned to Gotham City? What must Batman do to protect his secret identity and that of those who fight alongside him?
Joker fans were told to get ready for the mad-man's return in issue #13 of BATMAN. The start of the Death of the Family' story arc will bring the two together, and we got a look at the upcoming issue earlier today courtesy of Buzzfeed.
BATMAN #13 is set to hit store shelves on Wednesday, October 10th and it promises to deliver an even creepier portrayal of the comic book character -- just in time for Halloween. Check out some of the pages to BATMAN #13 below and let us know if you'll be picking it up later this week.== TEASER ==
